women are coming out with tales of being sexually accosted by republican presidential candidate donald trump. "the new york times" printed the story of two of these women. cbs news hasn't confirmed their stories, but rachel crooks was a 22-year-old receptionist inside trump tower back in 2005. the "times" reports she introduced herself to trump and they shook hands. shortly after he began kissing her cheek. then she said "he kissed me directly on the mouth." another accuser, jessica leeds, told the "times" trump's hands were all over me during an airplane flight. the 74-year-old says it happened more than three decades ago. >> he was like an octopus. it was like he had six arms. he was all over the place. and if he had stuck with the
2:41 am
not have gotten -- i might not have gotten that upset. so when he started putting his hand up my skirt, that was it. >> the trump campaign said the entire article is fiction. "this truly is nothing more than a political attack. this is a sad day for the times." the two reporters who wrote the story, michael barbero and megan tuohy, discussed it on cbs this morning. >> tell us about these allegations made in your story, megan. >> so jessica leeds is a woman who shared her story with us and said that a little over 30 years ago she was on a plane seated next to donald trump when he proceeded to grope her and put his hand up her skirt, forcing her to flee to the -- another seat on the plane. >> so that allegation comes forward. it's from 30 years ago. how do you verify it? how do you know something like that is worth putting in the paper?
2:42 am
but the second allegation was made, dates back to 2005, from a young woman who was working in trump tower at the time. she was a 22-year-old reception for bayrock, a company located there. she says she bumped into trump outside an elevator and that she introduced herself, they shook hands, he kissed her on the cheek, and then proceeded to kiss her on the mouth and she felt uncomfortable about it. so what do you do when you get -- when two women come to you -- >> did they reach out to you? >> they did. they reached out to us. >> and back to norah's question. how do you verify it? >> what we do is we interview the women, in both cases more than once, to make sure what they told us in their e-mails and, you know, lined up with what they told us in interviews. and then we also in both cases, these are women who had shared their stories with friends and family. in the case of the 22-year-old she immediately made a phone call to her sister right after this happened.
2:43 am
you know, so we talked to the boyfriend. we talked to the sister. in the case of jessica, we talked to other people she had told as well. >> and did you talk to donald trump? >> yes. but before we get to that, we talked not just to the two women who went on the record and used their names. we talked to the people around them who went on the record and used their names. there are no anonymous quotations in this story. these are people who are putting their names and their reputations by the claims that were described in these stories. i think that's important. >> at the time that they allege these assaults they had told close friends and family who recall similar stories -- >> in the case of rachel crooks that's absolutely correct. in the case of jessica leeds she began about a year and a half ago she said to tell a widening circle of people including her son, her nephew, and more than two friends. but we talked to two friends as well as the nephew and son, who recall the details of what she told them, which lined up with what she told us. >> megan, you talked to donald trump, you said? >> right. absolutely. we would never just go ahead and publish these accounts without
2:44 am
and so on tuesday night he got on the phone with me and i spelled out the allegations. and you know, gave him a chance to respond. >> what did he say? >> yeah. don't leave that line. >> he insisted that all of the allegations were a fabrication and that the "new york times" was making them up. and he got increasingly agitated as i continued my questions and started to yell at me and told me that i was a disgusting human being. washington, d.c. isn't noted for its fine dining but the latest michelin guide is out and nation's capital. none of the restaurants were awarded the coveted three stars, but nine got one star and three of them received two. they are pineapple and pearls, the mini bar, and the inn at little washington, which is actually 90 minutes into the virginia countryside. jan crawford was inside mini bar when the good news came down.
2:45 am
have been awarded two coveted michelin stars. jose got the call this morning from the michelin inspector. and i think excitement may be an understatement, as he has said, this is the kind of thing chefs spend their entire careers hoping to achieve. >> not good enough. >> reporter: when mercurial celebrity chef gordon ramsay lost a coveted michelin star -- >> i started crying when i lost my stars. >> reporter: he told a norwegian television station for once he didn't sea girlfriend. >> reporter: for nearly a century this red book has decreed the top restaurants in the world. this week after a years-long process shrouded in mystery michelin comes to washington with a new guide and for a few select chefs new stars. we sat down with michelin's top u.s. inspector at the tasting table test kitchen in new york with the promise not to blow her cover. >> it's an award they take seriously because they don't know we've been there, they
2:46 am
>> it strikes fear and awe in chefs' hearts. >> this is the holy grail for them. this is what they've been working toward their whole career. >> reporter: like all michelin inspectors she is strictly anonymous. even close friends don't know her real job. >> we're not trying to play tricks or hide from the chefs. what we are trying to do is have an honest experience the way a consumer does when they go to a restaurant. >> reporter: so you're not getting special treatment like oh, my gosh, there's the inspector. >> we sit on hold making reservations for a long time. we have to eat at 5:30 or 10:30. we get terrible tables. >> it's like you're in the cia. >> cia but much better food. >> reporter: in washington michelin found some great food. like the dishes coming from cutting edge filipino chef tom kunanen. >> this is our purgita. >> this is octopus? >> yes. >> reporter: we visited kunane's
2:47 am
critic to find out why it was included in michelin's list of 19 washington bib gourmands. >> kind of trendy. >> let's try it. >> oh, wow. >> you get all the textures. >> reporter: bib gourmands are the kind of moderately priced restaurants the inspectors might frequent on their night off. >> of course they meet the michelin guide criteria of quality and the cooking is excellent and a place like bad saint is a great bib g >> reporter: and one day they may get one, two, or even three elusive michelin stars. >> the best of a 3-star restaurant is it's once in a lifetime. it's something you're going to remember forever. >> reporter: but any star is an honor. of the restaurants that make it into the guide just 10% actually get a star rating. in the u.s. only 13 restaurants hold three michelin stars. places so exceptional they're worth a special journey. that was the purpose of the guide when it was founded in the
2:48 am
all, is a tire company. in the early days of the automobile its founders wanted to encourage travel. and what better way than a guide to fine dining? it now has 27 guides worldwide, three in the u.s. washington, long seen as a town of steakhouses and expense accounts, this week will become america's fourth. >> in the last few years it's incredible what's gone on with the restaurants in washington, d.c. there are a lot of young chefs and distinctive personality. and similarly the chefs and restaurants that have been around for a long time are evolving. >> reporter: one of those young chefs is aaron silverman, whose restaurant rose's luxury is widely considered one of the city's best. customers stand in line for hours to get a table. >> at the end of the day our job is just to make people happy. whether you're a server or a bartender who's waiting on a guest or whether you're a sous chef who's leading your cooks, like your job is to make them
2:49 am
>> reporter: but will rose's luxury get a star or will his new venture, the high-end pineapple and pearls which the "washington post" called the premier example of fine dining in the country? >> it's incredible. and i hope that we get something or multiple things from them. but the biggest benefit that i'm going to get out of that award is that hopefully we're busier and we can do more for our staff. >> now, pineapple and pearl is one of the restaurants awarded two stars. as for mini bar, if you want to eat there you better plan ahead. there's only room for a dozen customers. a tasting menu costs $275 a head. and that's without wine, taxes, or tip. sign me up. the "overnight news" will be right back. we're going to prove just how wet and sticky your current gel antiperspirant is. now, we're going to show you how degree dry spray is different. degree dry spray. degree. it won't let you down.

the national park service is celebrating its 100th year. conor knighton visited oregon's crater lake and its most famous attraction. >> reporter: crater lake is the deepest lake in the entire country. the pristine water in this collapsed volcano is so unbelievably blue it seems magical. it cast such a spell on early visitors they named the cone in the center wizard island. >> i love the name wizard island. >> mm-hmm. it kind of evokes a little bit of mystery.
2:53 am
in southern oregon. specifically, a mister tree. i've come to pay my respects to the old man of the lake. >> it's an honor to meet you, sir. >> the old man of the lake was first discovered in 1896 by joseph diller, who was a geologist and explorer, and he described him as a spectacle, curious enough to excite the imagination. >> reporter: it may not look like much, but this part of a tree has been part of this park since its inception. a 30-foot-long log implausibly bobbing upright for 120 years. mark batenica is an aquatic ecologist for the park. as he monitors the water quality of crater lake he also ends up monitoring the movements of the old man. that's right. this seemingly unsinkable tree gets around. >> you would think that the four foot above the water would act
2:54 am
the lake against the wind. >> reporter: it's as if he has a mind of his own. the old man can travel miles in a single day. today he's close to the shore. tomorrow he could be in the middle of the lake. in the 1930s the government commissioned a study of his movements. in their log of the log rangers observed the old man move over 60 miles in less than three months. and inquiring minds want to know, why hasn't the old man sunk? rocks may have once weighed down the roots, waterlogging the bottom while the sun dried out the top. but mark botenica isn't as concerned with the why. >> i think maybe some questions should remain unanswered, that maybe it's part of the human condition to believe in a little bit of mystery and the interconnectedness of all things. >> so as a scientist you're okay with maybe not knowing? >> i'm okay with not knowing.
2:55 am

2:57 am
some school administrators are coming under fire for the way they punish their wayward students. dozens of schools have canceled their homecoming dances this month. mireya villareal is at corona del mar high school outside los angeles. homecoming dance last weekend.i- >> reporter: you know, administrators here say some of their students were drinking and being disruptive at a football game lmo prompted the cancellation of corona del mar's homecoming dance but a lot of people are saying is this counterproductive to punish everyone for the bad behavior of just a few? corona del mar high school's homecoming football game went on as scheduled last week but this past weekend's homecoming dance was canceled. a casualty of alleged student drinking at a recent game. >> whoo!
2:58 am
deplorable. >> that's just out of control. you know, when you're under age you shouldn't be drinking anyways. >> reporter: the school decided to send a clear signal. >> as a consequence of extremely inappropriate and totally inexcusable behavior the homecoming activities have been canceled. >> you're punishing everybody because of a select bunch of idiots? i mean, come on. >> reporter: at walpole high school south of boston student drinking at school dances forced the principal to halt them all except for prom. >> kind of takes away from the othe >> reporter: walpole's principal issued a statement to cbs news, "we are working together to move forward and address this age-old but increasingly pervasive issue head on." >> i think some of the responsibility has to go to the parents. >> reporter: the national institutes of health says the percentage of high school students engaging in binge drinking has actually declined over the past decade. but the percentage of students drinking at levels far beyond the binge threshold is a growing concern.
2:59 am
sally who attends corona del mar high school understand why the homecoming dance was canceled. >> i think sometimes actions as big as that are necessary even though it's a real bummer for, you know, the students who weren't participating. >> if it actually facilitates something positive, then it was the right decision. and if that doesn't happen then you certainly could question whether it was the right call. >> reporter: high school officials in portland, maine say they defend their actions and they were worried about canceling most of a lot of the reason why was because they were worried about students being drunk, showing up drunk or under the influence of drugs. one of the superintendents that we spoke with, gayle, actually said he's in the education business, not the nightclub business and he defends his actions. >> and that's the overnight news for this friday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back a little later for the morning news and
3:00 am
trump, on accusations of sexual assault. >> they are totally and absolutely false. >> and the first lady on the vulgar comments he does not deny. >> it has shaken me to my core in a way that i couldn't have predicted. also tonight, hackers invade state election systems. officials blame russia. >> they don't need the red army anymore. they have the internet. elizabeth palmer with the most innocent victims of syria's civil war. >> and the kids who were hurt and killed? they were just walking along on their way to school. and who just won a nobel prize? ? the answer, my friend ? ? is blowin' in the wind ?
3:01 am
wind ? >> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." the republican candidate for president stood on one stage and denied accusations of sexual assault, and the first lady stood on another and chastised him over his treatment of women. since friday at least five women have told newspapers that donald trump assaulted them, years ago. trump called the accio lies, spun by an alliance of the clinton campaign and what he called the media. >> they will attack you. they will slander you. they will seek to destroy your career and your family. they will seek to destroy everything about you, including your reputation. they will lie, lie, lie. and then again they will do
3:02 am
they will do whatever's necessary. the clintons are criminals. remember that. they're criminals. people who are capable of such crimes against our nation are capable of anything. and so now we address the slander and libels that was just last night thrown at me by the clinton machine and the "new york times" and other media outlets as part of a coordinated and vicious attack. these vicious claims about me of inappropriate conduct with women are totally and absolutely false. >> trump has already apologized for his vulgar remarks on that 2005 video that surfaced last week. in counterpoint to trump today, this was michelle obama. >> i can't stop thinking about
3:03 am
it has shaken me to my core in a way that i couldn't have predicted. it's like that sick, sinking feeling you get when you're walking down the street minding your own business and some guy yells out vulgar words about your body. or when you -- you see that guy at work that stands just a little too close, stares a little too long, and makes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. it's that feeling of terror and violation that too many women have felt when somebody has grabbed them or forced himself on them and they've said no but he didn't listen. the shameful comments about our bodies. the disrespect of our ambitions and intellect. the belief that you can do anything you want to a woman? it is cruel.
3:04 am
and the truth is it hurts. this is not normal. this is not politics as usual. [ cheers and applause ] this is disgraceful. it is intolerable. and it doesn't matter what party you belong to, democrat, republican, independent, no woman deserves to be treated this way. none of us deserves this kind of abuse. >> now let's bring in major garrett covering the trump campaign and nancy cordes who's on the clinton campaign. major, first to you. trump also said today that very soon he would release evidence to refute these allegations of sexual assault. >> reporter: scott, those familiar with the inner workings of the trump campaign tell us that if the republican nominee had such hard evidence he would have released it publicly already. on facebook, twitter, and elsewhere. now, trump demanded "the new
3:05 am
which two women were quoted saying trump accosted them nun wanted and sexually aggressive ways. the "times" said the story was thoroughly reported in the national interest and said it welcomed a threatened legal challenge from trump. and only last sunday trump's campaign manager, kellyanne conway tweeted that hillary clinton was right several months ago when she said every victim of sexual assault should be heard, believed, and supported. but scott, i must tell you at this rally here in cincinnati and elsewhere today, trump supporters have told us they allegations. >> major, thank you. nancy cordes, what has hillary clinton said about all this today? >> reporter: well, first of all, she said twice that everyone should go and watch michelle obama's speech. she also told supporters at a fund-raiser here in san francisco that she's worried that some of the rhetoric coming from her opponent will discourage voters from both sides from getting out to the polls on election day. she said somewhat tongue in cheek, scott, that if her
3:06 am
upside is that in 26 days donald trump won't be in the news anymore. >> and every day wikileaks has been leaking out more internal e-mails from the clinton campaign. what did we see today? >> reporter: 1,800 more sensitive documents. staffers talking about everything from tensions between top aides to clinton's e-mail scandal. her running mate suggested today that some of these hacked e-mails might be faked. but so far, scott, hasn't given us any specific examples of that. >> major garrett, nancy cordes, thanks very much. make note of this. trump's running mate, mike pence, will be a guest on "cbs this morning." don't miss it. the fbi is checking out a bomb that was found in a backpack yesterday outside nedderland, colorado outside the police department there. an officer picked up the
3:07 am
colleague had left it. the bomb was active, but it did not explode. the man accused of setting off bombs in new jersey and new york last month was arraigned in his hospital bed today. ahmad rahimi pleaded not guilty to charges he tried to kill officers as they captured him. rahimi, an afghan-born u.s. citizen, was wounded in a gun battle with lyndon, new jersey police. more than 30 people were injured when one of the bombs in manhattan. the "cbs overnight news" will be

my boyfriend can't stop drinking until he drinks too much. a friend suggested al-anon family groups. she said there are no dues or fees. at first, i was afraid to go to al-anon.
3:09 am
but al-anon members know exactly how i feel. is someone's drinking troubling you? you might be surprised at what you can learn in an al-anon family group, from people just like you.
3:10 am
those hacked e-mails are a plot by the russians to disrupt the election, at least according to the u.s. government, which also alleges that the russians are trying to break into state voting systems. one of those attacks was in arizona, where we find jeff es on arizona's voter database started in rural hila county when an elections worker opened an e-mail attachment. >> very scary stuff. >> reporter: michelle reagan, arizona's secretary of state, says it was malware meant to attack these servers holding the voter information of 4 million people. >> we had a cybersecurity team in place. >> reporter: reagan was alerted by the fbi. experts believe the russian government is to blame.
3:11 am
and dismay, obviously. because we've never had to worry about foreign invaders coming in and trying to mess with our confidence in our election system. >> reporter: arizona, illinois, florida and nearly two dozen other states have seen similar scanning, probing, or breaches of their election systems. >> the russians have a different doctrine than we do. >> reporter: for over a decade jim lewis has advised the u.s. government on cyberattacks. >> they're using information a way to achieve their political goals. they don't need the red army anymore. they have the internet. >> reporter: president vladimir putin and other senior russian officials have denied involvement, calling u.s. accusations nonsense. >> the biggest thing we were worried about was did they take any information? >> reporter: reagan says she is confident the voter database wasn't compromised. but she says the attacks continue.
3:12 am
intrusion attempts, about 11,000 of them posed a serious threat. reagan and 32 other secretaries of state have asked the department of homeland security for help. >> i liken it to when you're being invaded by russia you don't call in your national guard. at some point you have to say, you know, i need the army. >> reporter: changing actual vote totals is difficult because most voting machines are not connected to the internet. but throwing confusion into an already contentious election, that's a lot easier. and scott, that's what officials believe the russians are trying to do. >> jeff pegues for us tonight. jeff, thank you. and another note. cbs news will be bringing you live coverage of the third and final clinton-trump debate. that's in las vegas next wednesday at 9:00 eastern, 8:00 central.
3:13 am
and don dahler is there. >> reporter: since 1851 bermuda has only had seven major hurricanes come close. number eight has just arrived. category 4 nicole has just gotten close enough for to us start experiencing the early rain bands and high winds. within hours nicole slammed ashore with a fury this island has rarely seen. huge waves crashed over the protective reef that cut the legs out from under what could have been a deadly storm surge of over even with the fierceness of this storm most of the damage was contained to downed trees and some flooding. one minor injury was reported. with the cleanup now under way, the people here count themselves lucky. don dahler, cbs news, bermuda. overnight u.s. warships fired missiles into rebel-controlled areas of yemen on the arabian peninsula. this was retaliation for missiles that were fired on a u.s. navy ship in the red sea.
3:14 am
>> reporter: it's an all too familiar sight. a u.s. navy ship launching missiles against targets in the middle east. but this was different. this was the first time the u.s. has fired at one of the warring sides in yemen's civil war, which pits rebels backed by iran against government forces backed by saudi arabia and the united arab emirates. the war has claimed an estimated 10,000 lives, many of them civilians, some of them killed the help of american aerial refueling and intelligence. the strike at 4:00 this morning local time came after the u.s. destroyer "mason" reported coming under attack by anti-ship missiles fired from territory held by the iranian-backed rebels. a second destroyer, the "uss nizze, launched cruise missiles at three unmanned radar stations u.s. officials believe to have been used in the attacks against the "mason."
3:15 am
severely degrade the accuracy of any future attacks. the weapon fired against the "mason" was an unsophisticated version of the silkworm anti-ship missile, which has poor accuracy to begin with but carries a large warhead. this video purports to show what happened when one of them hit a ship belonging to the united arab emirates earlier this month. none of the missiles fired at the "mason" reached their target. even without radar could still fire missiles aimed at american ships. and if they do, the pentagon has already vowed to retaliate again. scott? >> david martin at the pentagon for us this evening. david, thank you. coming up next, elizabeth palmer is inside aleppo, syria as a trip to school turns deadly.

"these kids committed no crime," he says. "they were unarmed. they just wanted to learn." this is exactly where that lethal mortar fell. 7:45 in the morning in a perfectly ordinary residential street in government-held

bob dylan is performing tonight in las vegas. maybe not the first place you'd imagine the winner of the nobel prize in literature would celebrate. but dylan, who took his stage name from the poet dylan thomas, is not your typical nobel laureate. anthony mason tells us why he is joining the ranks of hemingway, faulkner, and ? hey, mr. tambourine man ? ? play a song for me ? >> reporter: in his early appearances, this one at the newport folk festival in 1964, bob dylan quickly emerged as the most influential musician of his generation, though he could be as enigmatic as his own lyrics. >> do you think of yourself primarily as a singer or as a poet? >> i think of myself mostly as a song and dance man, you know.
